I love that you use his whole title of Sir. Ian McKellen when you say his name.

The idea that comic fans just have to wait for a character to no longer be "ruined" is part of the problem. The way comic publishers make changes for the sake of change then reverse course so quickly has done little else than create a cynical audience that can't take anything they do seriously.
Hmm... Batman purists. I'd honestly find it interesting if they used someone else, but Batman's role in the Justice League is kind of defined by the type of dude Bruce Wayne is. Who else could pull this off?
But we don't necessarily need a reboot of the core series so soon after. They need an established Batman for JL, but it'll just feel like Amazing Spider-Man all over again.
This show continues to be excellent! I didn't quite expect the 'new' news to be this much fun but they've been consistently very cool. Also, really interested in seeing how Injustice will pan out with the gaming and comic crowd respectively. With the reliable developer behind it I do think it should proof fascinating though.
